SIGN UP BY FEBRUARY 15

PAMA membership is on a calendar year, and members will want to be renewed soon for three reasons:

  1. the member directory on our web site will be updated with current 2011 members,
  2. the public referral system will change to current members only, and
  3. the first issue of the MPPA Journal prints in March.
Renew by February 15 and be included for all of these member benefits.
 
Members who join or renew later will be given the same benefits, but the updates will be later as well.
 
A reminder will be sent to all who have not renewed for 2011.
 
 

ACSM AND PAMA LEAD THE WAY

The American College of Sports Medicine and PAMA through the initiative Athletes and the Arts seek to integrate the science of sport and the performing arts for the mutual benefit of both.

ACSM is promoting PAMA's regional meetings to its members as part of the collaborative exchange and application of wellness, training and performance research and initiatives.
